If for horse cultivation, the rows should be fnm 2M- to 3 feet apart, or wide onoagrh for the horse to walk between the rows. If for hand cultivation the rows need not be j more than 12 to 18 inches ipart. Thej usual custom is to sow the seed some-| what closer together than the b^pfs are desired, and after the beets are up. to thin them from time to time, using the ones removed for greens until the beets finally are t-otne 4 to 5 Inches apart in the rows. It should be rempmbered that what Is commonly termed beet seed H really a seed ball, containing several i n d i - j v!dnal seeds, and for this reason each one of these balls may brins from 3, to 4 plants. All of these plants * i scept ( one should be rrrnoved during Oe thin-1 nlng process. Two ounces of the seed are sufficient to plant a 100-fooi row. Beecs should bo planted in succession at Intervals of about two weeks. during- the snramer so as to have a 'supply of young tender beets at all times.

In the garden, celery may be planted after some early crop, such as - lettuce, radishes or peas. As soon as the plants attain considerable size the leaves should be drawn together and a little soil compacted about the base /of the plant to hold It upright. If the j '.blanching is done with earth, carfe ''should be taken that the hearts of the plants do not become filled. Boards, '- paper or other material may be used r for blanching, but earthing up will pro-duce the finest flavor. Celery may be v stored and kept for _wlnter use by placing it In old hotbeds, "and covering it with fodder or straw; ^In, trenches covered with coarse ma- jffure or straw; In outdoor cellars; or ' to the storage room In the, basement.
